Casper the friendly kitty needs your help! A special needs guy who’s hard of hearing, Casper is considered “less adoptable.” Silly, right? He looks about as perfect as perfect can be!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Marla

Whenever I hear the name “Marla,” I think of Marla the virgin on Seinfeld. Also: Marla Rose, long-time activist, talented writer, vegan feminist agitator, and just all-around kickass human being. So when I saw Marla’s adorable face – complete with seemingly stenciled-on eyebrows, also a la Seinfeld – on Petfinder, I knew instantly that she’d be this week’s Friday Friend. Marlas rock, okay? So let’s get this girl adopted!

Marla is currently a ward of the Kansas City Kansas Animal Control; to meet her, you’ll need to go to one of the city’s satellite adoption events. Keep reading for the deets – and please share, even if you’re not in the position to adopt right now.

 

Marla
Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) Mix: An adoptable dog in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Young • Female

11/2/12: Marla is a cute little Heeler mix. She’s very sweet natured and attentive– she’s ready to please!

Marla is friendly and good with other dogs. She’s energetic so will need regular exercise. Another dog to play with would be great for her. She is about a year old and weighs 38 lbs.

Come meet Marla in Olathe at our weekend satellite adoption events! We’ll be at the Olathe PetSmart at 119th & Strang Line Road. You can contact us to see which day Marla will be coming or to make a request.

ADOPTION INFORMATION FOR DOGS…

Our dogs have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and dewormed. The adoption fee for males is $62 and for females it is $72. If you live in the city of Kansas City, KS there is an additional $10 fee for a city license.

COME MEET OUR DOGS AT OUR WEEKLY SATELLITE ADOPTION EVENTS!

We have satellite adoption events every Saturday and Sunday at the Olathe PetSmart at 119th & Strang Line Road. We may have a second satellite adoption location on Saturdays, too. Visit our Petfinder home page for more information on this weekend’s events. If you’d like to request that we bring a particular dog to one of the events this weekend send an email to jswartz@kckpd.org.

These adoption events are part of of our Ray of Hope partnership with The Humane Society of Greater KC, which has significantly reduced the euthanasia rate in our shelter. For more info on the Ray of Hope program, visit the The Humane Society of Greater KC web site.

Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Pita Pizza with Daiya Cheese

December 3rd, 2012 12:58 pm by Kelly


Say that five times fast!

Sam’s Club has the best hummus, y’all. Truthfully, I’d love to make the stuff myself, but my food processor just can’t get it as smooth and creamy as the store-bought stuff. Thankfully, Sabra hummus is delicious and vegan – and comes in giant, 25 ounce tubs! The only downside? Using it all up before the expiration date. (Or at least not too long after. It’s a guideline!)

Enter: hummus pizza! I’ve wanted to try a hummus pizza for what feels like forever, and some soon-to-expire Roasted Red Pepper Hummus provided the perfect opportunity. Since I didn’t want to commit to a “real” pizza, I started small with a person pita pizza. Pita and hummus, they go together like Dandies and vegan nutella!

The result is about as tasty as you’d expect (read: very), though methinks I might want to do some tinkering with the hummus. It dries out a bit during cooking – not to mention, the store-bought stuff is thick enough that it might be difficult to spread on dough – so a thinner hummus might work better here. If you’re making your own hummus special for the occasion, keep this in mind; otherwise, maybe try blending a tablespoon of water with a cup of hummus before spreading it on the pizza? Might work! I’ll try it and let you know, okay?

The recipe below includes the toppings I used, but feel free to swap them out for your own favorites!

 

2012-11-03 - Hummus Pita Pizza - 0002

 

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Pita Pizza with Daiya Cheese

Ingredients

1 piece of pita bread, freshly baked or frozen and defrosted
Roasted red pepper hummus (store bought or freshly made)
Mozzarella Daiya cheese (or your own favorite vegan cheese)
black olives, diced
sundried tomatoes, diced

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.

2. As the oven’s preheating, place your (defrosted) pita bread onto a pizza stone (or lightly greased pan). To defrost a frozen piece of pita bread, just pop in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.

3. Spread a generous amount of hummus on the pita bread, followed by the sundried tomatoes, cheese, and black olives.

4. Bake at 425 degrees F for ten to fifteen minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

5. Enjoy warm and crispy!
